A few days ago, the author visited a relative's house in a distant house. The relatives' family usually met once in Neishan. It was also very enthusiastic to see us here, and the family had a short chat at home. After chatting, the relatives and hostess went out to pick some fruits under the hillside not far away, saying that it was for us to try something new and that we must have never seen this thing for a long time. Listening to her say, the author's curiosity was also suspended, and my heart was full of expectations.
After a while, the hostess came back and opened the small vegetable basket to find that the fruit was oblong, about 2 cm long, and was made up of many small grains of fruit, black purple or bright red. Yes, this fruit is mulberry. Really don't say, I haven't seen Mulberry for many years, and every time I see Mulberry, I will think of Mr. Lu Xun's article when he was young: "It is not necessary to talk about green vegetables, smooth stone well rails, tall acacia trees, and purple mulberries; There is no need to say that the weeping cicadas groaned in the leaves, the fat wasp lay on the cauliflower, and the light-headed Sky Son (Skylark) suddenly went straight from the grass to the sky ... "It was full of childhood flavor. With good memories, tasting fresh mulberries, sweet and sour, fresh and smooth. After listening to the hostess saying that a pound of mulberry can be sold for 30 yuan, the author said that he should plant a slice quickly, which is better than the economic benefits of current crops, and there is no need to worry about getting rich. The hostess smiled and thought for a moment before slowly speaking to the author.
It turns out that there are some taboos in the cultivation of mulberries in the countryside. Old people often say, "No mulberry is carried before, and no willow will be planted later." According to legend, a family had a long time ago because the mulberry and willow trees were planted in front of and behind the courtyard, which led to the fall of the gate. Story of a member's death. Although the legend has been for a long time, the influence has been passed down. The hostess said that she would n’t plant it if it was n’t for the purpose of planting different fruits for the children in the family. In order to avoid the impact, she planted the only mulberry under a hillside not far away from the house. After listening to these silently, I did not expect that this little mulberry still has so many stories. However, it may be due to this reason that the mulberry plantation is less, and the price will be so high.
In fact, mulberry is a fruit with high nutritional value, which can be eaten by both the elderly and children. As early as more than 2,000 years ago, mulberry was the tonic used by the Chinese emperor. Mulberry fruit is rich in active proteins, vitamins, amino acids, carotene, minerals, resveratrol, anthocyanins and other ingredients. The nutrition is 5-6 times that of apples and 4 times that of grapes. It has a variety of effects. It is hailed as "the best health fruit in the 21st century" by the medical profession. Eating mulberry often can significantly improve the body's immunity, and has the effects of delaying aging and beauty.
In addition, mulberry also has good medicinal value, which can nourish the liver and kidney, improve reproductive sub-health, and nourish blood and beauty. It is suitable for symptoms such as insufficient blood, dizziness, night sweats, thirst, thirst, intestinal dryness, and constipation. .
Distant legends make farmers reluctant to use many mulberries and may lose a good opportunity to become rich. However, there are also many people who dare to break through the tradition and thus gain a lot of rewards. In the face of traditional customs and economic benefits, if you are, how would you choose?
